Yale Young Global Scholars at the Summer 2014 Session

June, July and August 2015

The Yale Young Global Scholars (YYGS) Program was founded as a small pre-collegiate summer program thirteen years ago under the name Ivy Scholars. YYGS has now expanded to accommodate 600 participants and currently runs three distinct sessions: Politics, Law, and Economics; International Affairs and Security (formerly knows as Studies in Grand Strategy); and Science, Policy, and Innovation. The Science, Policy and Innovation session is targeted at students with interests in emerging global challenges in fields such as global health, environment and energy, all areas that require technical expertise, policy fluency and innovative leadership to effectively confront. Apply by February 26, 2015.

Yale University is home to the Yale University Science Olympiad Student Club and hosts the Yale Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament.
